Windows 7: Too many Processes?

Too many Processes?

This is my task manager, and all the processes. Is it normal for this many to be functioning? My computer feels like its been running a bit slower lately... (check specs)

I deleted the relevant knowledge malware recently, and my gadgets said the CPU was running around 55-85% at times, with up to 50% of the ram being used. That sounds like a bit much for the few applications I have running.

Is there anything I can do to speed up my system or remove the processes that don't need to be there? Thanks.

Obviously, Photoshop, Bridge and FF are using a ton.

FF is the least of the three. Still 220 mb is savage.

I have never seen Palemoon go over 100mb or so on my machine.

The OP has 8 GB of RAM, usage should be the least of his concern. 220 mb is nothing.

You might want to look at your startup list.
The only thing I have running is MS Security Essentials.
Here is a shot of my task manager. I only have 2 gig of memory and running Win7 32 bit

You are not showing the whole picture. You have to click "Processes from all users" on the bottom. A picture of your startups would also help.

Irrelevant how much ram he has - 220mb is a lot for FF to be using.

Too many processes... Lag?
